I don't have samsung HDD's its Seagate. Read the OP properly.

Hydro Series H80 is for Processor and the Hydro Series H100 is a "Radiator" which I have fitted to the front of my PC.

Everything is compatible with XP. Even if you have the crappiest config XP is going to run smoothly. It may not have the Graphics or User Friendliness but it gets the job done and well.

Most of hardcore gamer's use XP until now to keep up with competition Alienware used to use XP on gaming laptops. They still have an option for Ultimate Gaming Experience their own modified XP Package. They also recommend XP for their PC's.


The H80 and the H100 are two different CPU water-cooling blocks with different radiators.

Still not seeing anything anywhere online where you can purchase a 5TB Seagate HDD. Maybe a 5TB NAS, but not an internal 5TB HDD.

Everything that is compatible in XP is compatible in Windows 7. I've yet to run into any major software that I can get Windows 7 to run. The two times I've had issues with a program, I've been able to get it running in a VM.

Most "Hardcore gamer's" would realize that Windows XP completely cuts into their system resources. Like you, spending all that money on 16GB of RAM when Windows will only see 4GB of that, before it calculates in how much Video Memory that video card of yours has (I'm guessing 1.2GB) so you're suddenly down to only 2.8GB of the 16GB you have installed. If you have to ask why would I say that, then you're not a "hardcore gamer". You're just another person with daddy's credit card.

Also, XP doesn't really play as well with multi-core processors compared to Windows 7. So tell me again why "Hardcore Gamers" only use XP.

Also - Seagate has released 5TB internal drives? Can you post a link that proves this? I know they have 1 TB platters, and you can squeeze 5 platters into a drive, but I wasn't aware that they'd pulled the trigger on it.... They've already got the drive capacity crown, and demand for drives that big is not that strong, at least not at the prices they'd charge (the enterprises don't like them, because as drives get larger, RAID rebuilds take longer, and they're afraid of a second drive failing during the rebuild - and very very few consumers can fill even a 2-3 TB drive).


Everything I've looked up says that they were talking about releasing a 5TB drive sometime in 2012, but the articles are from Oct. 2011. Since then, I've have not been able to track down any newer information.

lol read properly what he said or he'll hit you with that shuvel........ :heh:

its sad how XP was scrapped even after vista failed terribly......
i mean most ppl dont even need all that graphics XP is hands down the best thing from MS....
lack in competition in pc OS sector is the reason ppl create things like vista.....
if only they had kept XP as a reference and designed a simpler OS for today's computers then ppl would definitely change from XP......

4Gb limitation is sad but then who dreamed of 8GB ram's on PC's in 2002....

Edit: sry bout vostro lol...im using dell vostro 1310......it was stalking my head

He obviously meant 2.5tb drives in raid. Because of the thailand floodings, the entire hd industry is shifting to high capacity platters sooner than expected. Higher capacity drives don't have to be in demand, as seagate, samsung, wd are all focused on making on them to recover the lost productions. One of the core index for the hd industry is the total capacity sold (as well as estimated demand) per year, lower productions due to damaged factories and stockpiles = higher capacities drives to compensate.

Asrock 970
Athlon II X3 455
8.00 RAM
300GB Caviar Black
Radeon 6950
Coolermaster Silent Pro 1000W

Nothing fancy, but it does everything I need it to do. Only complaint is the BIOS is a little sluggish and Radeon is not as easy to update as nVidia.

I've been with AMD since the start and it hasn't failed me yet. I plan to upgrade to an X6 soon enough. So far I've only seen that people prefer i5s and i7s for extreme overclocking purposes.

Same thing with graphics cards. The Radeon HD Series is nice and inexpensive while providing the power ya need.

It is kinda amazing how RO can pretty much still cause a framerate lag in some of today's PCs ESPECIALLY when the Dark Illusion status gets inflicted on you, still waiting on the fix for that so I dont have to disable effects often...

Use AMD not because of the value or anything, but just because I always have and it's never given me a problem. Never really been about uselessly high specs just to have them, computer is just a tool that only needs to do its job, no more and no less.

At work so I don't remember all the specifics offhand.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83 GHZ
Asus P5Q Motherboard
HIS Radeon 4870 1GB
WD Velociraptor 10k RPM 320GB
Bunch of data drives, like 3TB in total or something
8GB G.Skill 1066 DDR2 RAM
Corsair TX750 PSU
Antec 900 case

2x Samsung 24" 1920x1200 monitors, one is a T240HD
Logitech G9 gaming mouse
Logitech MX5500 wireless keyboard + mouse set

Regarding the Windows XP topic, I personally think Windows XP starts getting really slow and inefficient after a while, and is only remotely worth it if you care to reformat your computer every 2 months or something. Also, it's definitely not optimized for newer hardware like other people have mentioned already.

That's what you get for a blatant bragging post like this ;-)

Those disks in a RAID or no? I assume RAID 1 (mirroring)?

Still - For all that money you spent on that computer, you should have sprung for an SSD....

That's the 1TB HDD which I have 3 and 2 500GB.

After reading your posts you seem hindered by my config and can't accept it lol. Relax son. The CPU fan's attached to the radiator are optional they come off and on and you can use it anywhere in the PC Cabinet so I drilled a couple of holes and attached it on the side.

2x Fans on the back sucking out air 2x in the front pulling in air one on each side blowing in.

I don't use credit cards, you don't have to use credit cards when you own 2 Porsche dealerships.

My father is happily retired.

If you want more info I took 2 dumps this morning and had corn in them, come over for dinner my cook is making a Corn Salad just for you

when did 2x2TB + 2x500GB become 3x1TB+2x500GB? How do you put those 5 drives in raid?

2 front fans, 2 back fans, and 1 on each side, so the motherboard/hd cage/psu must be floating in the middle?
